This Riccar is a fine Japanese-made machine from the early 1960s. It's another very lightly used machine in excellent condition.
It's a strong straight stitch and zigzag machine with built in buttonholes and blind stitch. With this machine you can sew lightweight, medium, and even multiple layers of denim and canvas. Garment leather is no problem either.
The feed can be easily dropped for freehand sewing and quilting with a flick of the switch, and the foot pressure releases instantly with a touch on the Patch-O-Matic presser foot adjuster.
You'll use standard needles and standard class 15 bobbins that you'll find at any sewing supply.
Take a minute to really look at the pictures of this machine. It's elegant. This is a machine that you'll be proud to display in your sewing room.
It's just come off the restoration bench here at Stagecoach Road Vintage Sewing Machine Restoration and it's looking and sewing like a new machine.
To see and hear this machine sew, check out this video we've made. See how to thread the machine, wind the bobbin, and sew on it. Watch the video. It's entertaining and informative.
Here at Stagecoach Road Vintage Sewing Machines, we are passionate about what we do, which is restoring beautiful vintage sewing machines to the best that they can be, because we are in love with the styling, the quality of the materials, and the workmanship that went into these great machines. Work like this just can't be duplicated today.
You, seriously, cannot buy a machine this good, new.
So we search out the best of these fine machines, the ones that are very lightly used, and open them up. We disassemble the tension, the motor, the bobbin case, take off the faceplate, the gear cases, the hand-wheel, the slide plate, the bottom plate, and the back access plate and get down to where the old dried-on oil and grease are. We clean out the packed-in lint and dust, remove the thread-jams, inspect the hook and the needle plate, and generally look for potential problems.
We use high-quality lubricants in all the right places, getting into those spots that aren't as obvious to the average user, and clean out the old hardened grease from the gear cases, and we test the machines to make sure that they are sewing at their best.
After all of this, each machine is carefully detailed, to bring out it's original beauty. These are some of the finest examples of mid-century styling that you'll find, and we want each machine to be the very best that it can be.
